Five on Friday

It's a been a busy couple weeks around, so a weekend is just what we need!  We're planning on lots of relaxing and some fun with our friends that are in town with their 4 month old.  Squishy babies are my favorite, and this little one is particular has me so excited for our family to be growing.  May seems so far away, but I think I can wait.  Here's my (sometimes) weekly five...  As always, thanks to all the lovely hosts: Christina, Darci, April, & Natasha!


Christmas stuff is already flooding the stores, and I'm actually semi okay with it.  While I most definitely do not decorate or listen to any Christmas music 'til after Thanksgiving, I have no problems making a few purchases before then...  I snagged the best jammies of the season yesterday, and they were even on sale!  Liam is going to go crazy for these, especially when he sees us putting a Christmas on our own car after we cut it down!

Might as well keep with this Christmas thing I got going and share an ornament that I snagged this week too!  Crate & Barrel always has an awesome selection!  I have a red & white theme going for my tree, so I snagged this white one.  I try to only buy a few new ones a year, because it's so hard to hold back!

One of my other purchases this week (my mom was in town, I don't typically shop this much) was this cozy sweatshirt by Stem.  I love how soft all their stuff feels (organic cotton) and pretty much wish I could fill my closet with just their clothes!  And this blush color is gorgeous!

I found this garlic mushroom quinoa recipe on Pinterest and am somewhat excited to try it out!  Well, I'm at least considering it, which is big.  Hopefully this nausea passes soon, and I can get back to trying new recipes.

Remember when I posted my Fall Decor Favorites?  Well my sweet sweet husband just happens to read my blog (even the posts I don't have him edit) and surprised me with the wreath a couple weeks ago!  It looks perfect on our front door!  It would also look amazing on a mantle, but unfortunately mine is taken over by a massive TV.  This picture of me is completely unflattering (I swear my arm is not that big), but so goes this stage of pregnancy!

TGIF friends!

  7. Oh my gosh, that recipe just looks divine! You definitely just inspired a new pregnancy craving for me. Also, I wish I could get in the Christmas mood! I'm so nervous about baby being born and moving now that I'm definitely slacking on Christmas plans haha :)

  8. That Hanna Andersson pjs are SO CUTE! My MIL got Mason some last winter and we seriously wore them way past the acceptable range (maybe March or April? LOL). I need to get some more of them! If only the weather would cooperate and let it be cold enough for anything put shorts and a t-shirt (even to bed!).
    I think I saw that sweatshirt on Pinterest Told Me To and was thisclose to buying one myself!
